Sassy Says

Sassy has some pretty good quotes. Nothing gets by her, and she has a comment for everything. Here are some recent ones:

1. We were visiting with our friends, LP and The Minister, and we were discussing their daughter's first birthday. I asked LP and The Minister if their parents were coming into town for the baby's party. LP said "Oh yeah, Minister, I forgot to tell you, your parents are coming!"

Being the child of divorced parents, The Minister asked "Which ones?"

Sassy looked at him like he was missing a few brain cells, and said "You have more than a mommy and a daddy?"

The Minister said "Yes, Sassy, welcome to 2010."

2. This also involves LP and The Minister.

We had them over for dinner one night, and LP, The Minister, The Farmer, and I all sat around talking. Sassy sat right beside us taking in everything we said. At one point, The Minister said something (and I can't remember what it was), and Sassy said "You know you shouldn't say that in front of me, because I'm just going to repeat it."

I guess we are forewarned.

3. The girls are doing Upward Cheerleading this spring. They did soccer in the fall, and it was a huge disaster on all fronts -- basically they hated it from the first moment they set foot on the practice field, and halfway through the season Sassy decided to just wear her Clemson cheerleading uniform to the games rather than her soccer uniform. This did nothing for The Farmer's mood -- he was her coach, and he was pretty much volunteered into the job.

Cheerleading has gone much better. In fact, every day after school, Sassy asks if we are going to cheerleading today.


Last Saturday was the girls' first game. We got there, and Sassy turned into this shy, clingy child -- totally unlike her. She stayed like that for a while, so The Farmer took it upon himself to get her excited.

He gave her this little speech: "Sassy, you are a wild woman around our house! You are so loud; you are never quiet! You have been wanting to do this cheerleading thing, and now you are just hanging onto Mommy and Daddy." Then, as he pointed at her chest, he said "I know you are a wild woman in there -- let it out, get excited!"

Sassy just looked at him and said "No, Daddy, that's just Jesus in there."

The Farmer decided he had nothing to argue against that!
